Speaker 2: Today I'm speaking with Mitzi Reyes, well known celebrity makeup artist and entrepreneur, to get her thoughts on how she's learned to integrate distinctively visualized backward compatible products into her cosmetics business. Mitzi as a business owner, what's been your biggest takeaway this year? Speaker 3: Hi, Alvin. Great to see you. Again.

Speaker 2: Today we're going to discuss the rules about when to italicize things such as media titles, foreign expressions, et cetera, according to the GoTranscript guidelines. In the last test, you may have noticed a lot of references to a movie called office space.

Let's face it, nine out of 10 applicants never bothered to look at the guidelines for any transcription company they're applying to, which IMHO is a big mistake. Anyway, office space is today considered a classic comedy, and it may well have inspired Ricky Gervais to create his equally brilliant BBC sitcom . The office later made into a somewhat less brilliant but still very funny US version starring Steve Car

Those pretty far but not as far as some of our astronauts who went to the moon in the same amount of time. And that's a whopping 386,400 kilometers from wherever you're sitting right now. Before Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin made their fateful trip, even learned, scientists weren't 100% sure what was there. In fact, they weren't sure till the moment the eagle landed, whether it would land on solid ground or sink into lunar lunar dust. It was kind of scary when you think about it.

See what happened is our former neighbors, a sweet elderly couple in their 80s moved to Del Boca Vista, hard to believe but their tiny little house, which they originally paid about five grand for sold for nearly one and a half million dollars. Apparently, though, the foundation slab was cracked sometime back in the 90s. So they have to basically do a tear down build up. It's annoying, but you know, I can take it if you can. Anyway, I thought that would be a good topic for our new test. home construction.

Speaker 1:  This audio is used for the transcriber test at GoTranscript. Speaker 2: Numbers are important, which is why we put so many of them into our tests for new transcribers. Most of the numbers in this test are also in the guidelines, which we recommend all transcribers and transcriber wannabes bookmark and refer to as often as possible. Even if the exact number you're concerned about isn't there, one similar to it will doubtless catch your eye.
